ROSY (Purebred tri-colored Miniature Bull Terrier) - AVAILABLE!!!!! Only $350 adoption!!! My adoption profiles tend to be long & very detailed. Please read the ENTIRE Adoption Profile (all the way to the FAQ) so you understand everything about this dog & if you are a good match for her. If you still have questions after reading the entire profile, PLEASE read the FAQ for your answer instead of e-mailing me the question. Most of the questions are answered there, & I'm not always able to answer all the e-mails. The FAQ is at the bottom of every Adoption Profile. Some of the sites that I post on do have space limits & cut it off. In those cases, you can find the full Adoption Profile on our Facebook page. If you don't have Facebook, & you e-mail, you will get an auto reply with the FAQ in it. Rosy ended up at the shelter because someone reported her owner beating her. She was cowering, lethargic, and shut down when the authorities got there & they did not realize the extent of her injuries at first. She had a lot of bruising and swelling, & it turned out that he had beat her so badly the he broke the ball of her right hip off her femur. She has had hip surgery & is recuperating nicely & walking well now. The fur on her hip is still growing back in from when they shaved her for surgery. Rosy needs someone who will continue to follow her physical therapy instructions (below) so she can recuperate well. While at the shelter, she was fearful & avoidant and that landed her on their euthanasia list. That is when Safe Haven stepped in. We networked her through our E-list Adoption Program & found (what we thought) was a great home for her. This couple had experience with Bull Terriers, and SEEMED to listen and understand how to work with Rosy to help her get comfortable at their home. But for some unknown reason, the woman decided that after only having Rosy for 9 days, that it was a good idea to allow her dog to 'play' with Rosy. DESPITE the fact that Rosy was still healing from her spay surgery, still healing from her hip surgery (both of these are major surgery), and the fact that she has been attacked by another dog & is afraid of them! Common sense is just not common anymore... Prior to this woman allowing the dogs to 'play', she admitted that Rosy had growled at her dog (a major sign that a dog is telling you they are uncomfortable!) When the dogs started 'playing', their dog grabbed Rosy by the neck, & a fight started. I do not know the intentions of that dog grabbing her neck, whether it was playful or aggressive. I don't care. I am furious that this woman even allowed that after having Rosy for such a short time & KNOWING all that she had been through. I spent hours going over dog body language & how to work with a fearful dog with her. On top of that, the Behavior team at the Shelter who had been working with Rosy ALSO spent an hour with this couple going over what to do & not to do! The couple turned her to me all bloody. She has healed up now from that, but because Rosy was attacked by a dog in her original owners home, then again at this adopters home, she is absolutely TERRIFIED of other dogs. Even if they are much smaller than her... So I would like her to be the only dog in the home so she can relax and be comfortable without worrying about being hurt again. I think one of the reasons she is still reserved here is because there are several other dogs here. I would love to see her go to a home where she can blossom & feel comfortable with someone who has more time to give her one on one time. The shelter marked her ears as having thickening of the skin (sign of a chronic problem), inflammation & thick debris that was so bad that they could not see down her ear, yet when I questioned them about it, they said she was fine. Well it turned out that she had severe ear infections in both ears. She is currently undergoing treatment for that and is almost done. Bull Terriers are known for their ears collecting debris. Her new family needs to be willing to clean her ears once a week (I suggest using Bannix, and can show you how to clean her ears). If a Bull Terriers ears are not cleaned out on a regular basis, this can cause the debris to build up & cause an ear infection. Rosy is just perfect! She is the sweetest little angel. She has been very easy to handle, and has allowed all handling (even cutting her toenails). She is scared when being handled and visible shakes though. It just makes me want to scoop her up in my arms and let her know that she is safe now... I just can not see how anyone would ever get mad at such an absolute dream dog. Rosy comes when called. She is playful. She loves toys & to play fetch. PLEASE NOTE: All of the pets at Safe Haven receive basic training when they come here. All adopters will be given a list of words that your new pet knows at the time of adoption. What each pet learns depends on how much time I have had to work with
